Models of Engaged Learning and Teaching
International Conference on Models of Engaged Learning and Teaching
I-MELT was a meeting place of minds sharing a common conceptualisation that engages students and educators in many diverse ways, contexts and cultural settings. The conference used the Models of Engaged Learning and Teaching as the conceptual frameworks for shared conversations, and so all presentations used, adapted, connected together or critiqued one or more of the following:
Research Skill Development
The Research Skill Development framework is used by educators to make the processes of research-based learning explicit to students in content-rich curricula.
Clinical Reflective Skills
The Clinical Reflective Skills framework is particularly suited to clinical environments in which student professional learning is mediated by their effective reflective practice.
Work Skill Development
The Work Skill Development framework is to put stakeholders involved in Work Integrated Learning, including academics, employers and students on the same page.
The Critical Thinking pentagon is being ‘Beta-tested’: it uses the same six facets as the other MELT, however, places ‘Evaluate and Reflect’ at the heart of the enterprise.
Researcher Skill Development: RSD7
The Researcher Skill Development framework- or RSD 7 for short- extends the original RSD so that it places First year and Professor on the same research continuum.
The MELT family includes the frameworks for:
- Research Skill Development (RSD and RSD7),
- Work Skill Development (WSD),
- Clinical Reflective Skills (CRS),
- Critical Thinking Skills (CTS),
- Optimising Problem Solving (OPS) pentagon,
- Research Mountain (for children), and
- Your own MELT, adapted to fit your contexts.
